Item specifics

Condition: Used : Split the cost with friends
A vehicle is considered used if it has been registered and issued a title. Used vehicles have had at least one previous owner. The condition of the exterior, interior and engine can vary depending on the vehicle's history. See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller Notes: This bike is proudly wearing all its original paint and decals, some of which are showing signs of age and a few chips. The gold paint on the included original wheels, especially the chain side of the rear, has not held up too well. There is a dent in the r/h Conti, under the foot peg, that was there when I got the bike. There are a few other scuffs and marks that should show in the pictures, that are from normal use. This is typical for the original finishes on Ducatis of this era. That said, this bike is in beautiful condition and has a real presence. It never fails to attract attention and complements where ever its ridden. It is 100% ready to ride.

 I purchased this bike in 2002 from a collector in CA who was storing it, and as I remember, was the second owner. It was last registered in 1995, and had 2929 miles on it. I started going thru it in 2007 with the intention of setting it up as an enjoyable, comfortable, reliable, good handling, good and near original looking rider. I also had a goal of not making any changes to it that could not easily be undone, so it could be returned to its original condition if desired, and to save all removed parts (which are pictured and are included). Aside from the common replacement of the faulty wires coming from the ignition pick ups in the timing side engine cover, I did make two alterations that may or may not meet that second goal. First, was to add 1" extensions in each center stand leg (no welding involved) so the rear tire would clear the ground after adding longer shocks. Second, I made an extension for the trip mileage reset mechanism on the speedometer, so I could keep track of miles between gas stops. This involved trimming the r/h edge of the dash panel, so the reset shaft would be easily accessible. The following is a breakdown of what else I did and the part changes.

Front End:
- Fork legs switched sides to position calipers at rear.
- Forks set up with springs and Gold Valves by BCM (Ducati shop).
- Added Telefix fork brace.
- Fully rebuilt Brembo P4.32B calipers with Brembo caliper adapter plates.
- Ferodo Platinum pads.
- Stainless brake lines made with all Goodridge components.
- Brembo "F1 style" full floating 280mm iron rotors.
- Brembo "916 style" 16mm master cylinder.
-Telefix multi-way adjustable clip on handlebars to raise bars up about 1 3/4 inch.
-Late '80's style Yamaha TZ throttle and new cables. Best throttle for big Dell'Orto's.

Electrical and Speedometer:
- All wiring, sockets, and connections completely gone thru, cleaned, and Vaseline protected from corrosion.
- Ignition pick up wires from inside timing side cover replaced.
- Questionable stock coils replaced with Dyna coils and Dyna spark plug leads.
- Replaced turn signals with the o.e.m. European version that don't have the large USA required reflectors.
- Added heated grips.
- Added additional heavy duty ground wire to engine cases.
- Added Bevel Heaven battery acid catch tank.
- New battery 9/2013.
- Added trip mileage reset shaft.
- Speedometer rebuilt and calibrated by Palo Alto Speedometer during winter 2012/13.

Chassis and Final Drive:
- Relocated foot pegs and controls approx. 2" lower and 1 1/2" forward for riding comfort. Non-folding foot pegs used.
- Replaced shocks with 13 1/2" long top of the line YSS #RG366-340RCL-19 shocks, fully adjustable for rebound and compression.
- Added 1" extensions to each center stand leg due to longer shocks. Not welded, could be returned to original length.
- Converted to 520 drive chain, using Bevel Heaven front sprocket and DID ERV3 chain. 15/37 gearing.
- Added Bevel Heaven drive chain Swing Arm Protector and Case Saver.

Fuel System:
- Fuel tank is rust free. Drained and WD40'd inside at the end of each riding season.
- Filler cap replaced with locking version, as tank bag was accidentally opening it.
- Replaced tank petcocks with newer Paioli versions for reliability.
- New fuel lines with crossover tees.
- 40mm  Dell'Orto's fully rebuilt again in 2012. Always run with K&N filters.

- Untouched except for valve adjustment by ex-BCM tech at approximately 4000 miles, regular oil (Brad Penn "Penn Grade 1" SAE 50) and filter changes, and occasional valve checks.
- Start and run video here:

- Over the winter and spring of 2012 I built the set of wire wheels on the bike now. I always felt the bevel super sports looked and performed their very best with wire wheels.
- Rims are Sun polished aluminum from Buchanan's. Front is 2.75x18 and rear is 3.50x18.
- Stainless nipples and polished stainless spokes from Buchanan's.
- Hubs and cush bucket are polished. Front bearing carriers are 6-bolt.
- Assembled with Ti bolts where possible.
- Lightened 229mm iron rear rotor mounted with proper caliper mounting bracket.
- Tires new spring 2012, Bridgestone BT45's: front 110/80-18, rear 140/80-18. Michelin tubes.

Photos all taken 06-07-2014, except the two taken 09-19-2012 on a very fun trip into the bikes natural element, the western N. Carolina mountains. Video taken 06-11-2014. All take off and extra parts shown in photo are included in the sale. The included dual seat, passenger pegs, and extra r/h side cover were not original to this bike. The VT license plate shown mounted on bike is NOT included in the sale. This motorcycle is sold as is and where is, and all shipping arrangements are the purchasers responsibility, but I will be happy to assist any way I can. The state of Vermont does not title vehicles 15 years old and older, so a full bill of sale and the signed over current registration card will be provided to the purchaser. Please ask if you have any questions. This auction is set up with a minimal reserve that I am confident will be reached, so happy bidding!
